Ann and Emma talk to Jenny Blake, who just ran in the February General Election for The Social Democrats.
Jenny has worked and studied and lived in Limerick for 20 years. She was canvassing coordinator for Yes Equality Limerick in 2015, has previously worked with NOVAS, PALLS and is currently Student Support Coordinator in UL Student Life. She also happens to be married to Ann.
Jenny was a first-time candidate who found herself with only three weeks to campaign due to the snap election. She reflects on the whirlwind experience and many other things (Beyoncé and karaoke might get a mention).
